Virgin Falls hike

While in Tennessee for spring break, I hiked with a few friends to Virgin Falls, one of the area's classic hikes. The water was very high, and each of the four waterfalls was impressive.

When I first did the hike years ago, there was a detour that led up a ladder to an overlook, and back to the main trail via another ladder. However, not long after, a major storm destroyed both ladders, and the overlook trail was closed. I was excited to see on this trip that it was reopened. Now, only one ladder is open, so you return to the trail the way you came. But it's nice to have this option back.
